Depending on the hour, I am a novelist, critic, or art/design historian. I might spend the morning writing about a post-apocalyptic world filled with lightning storms and then dash off to teach the history of Bauhaus. I love the intersections among, and divergences between, these pursuits.

When I teach or write about art and design, I feel like a guide between two worlds, translating visuals into words. It’s not so different when I write fiction; I craft worlds that I hope readers can see as clearly as I can. The processes inform and enrich each other.
